Hi,

Thanks for your enquiry.

The Deeds should be registered at the Land Registry.

If so, they are stored "electronically" at the Land Registry.

Accordingly, I would suggest that you go on the Land Registry website and check. You will be able to obtain copies online.

Here is the link-

Alternatively, you can approach a local Conveyancing Solicitor, who will need to deal with the Transfer anyway, and he will be able to obtain copies for you.

I hope this assists and answers your question.

If so, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.

Kind Regards

Al
